Groundhog Day

This obese groundhog is not Punxatawney Sam of Gobbler's Knob, Pennsylvania. If any groundhog could cast a shadow this guy surely could. I think they're only that fat when they begin their hibernation.

Groundhog day is not something I usually pay attention to but I noticed a blurb about it when I turned on the computer a little while ago. Around here it's going to rain all day washing away much of yesterday's snow fall. As it's supposed to stay above freezing, the rain should not turn to ice -- a very good thing for drivers. Anyway, no local groundhog will see his shadow which is supposed to mean spring will come early. To which I say Bah-humbug. I'm psychologically prepared to wait two more months before the crocuses pop up and the leaves pop out. I have a bunch of quilt projects to work on during that time. I've been accumulating UFOs - or maybe they're mostly WIPs -- for some months now.

Oh my...that is quite the groundhog. I don't think I've ever seen one so...ahhh..rotund. It did capture my eye though when I saw it on my blog roll. There's something about that cute little face.
